Why don't you just stop top posting without asking us all to assemble into
some kind of "Should Al stop top posting" jury? From everything that's gone
on so far I'm sure you've learned that most of us like to start writing at
the upper left hand corner of the paper and then proceed toward the right
edge until we run out of space and then do a carriage return and a line
space which starts a new line.
Just thinking about it from the point of view of the editor; if you top
post, all the addresses of the text which was there before and which you're
displacing have to change.
If you bottom post none of that has to happen. The new text just gets mapped
into new space and that's that.
Plus, most of us consider the upper left hand corner as the beginning of
time, so if you move someone else's previous text down and then insert yours
where the previous text was it's like we have to read the comments before we
read the source, and then go looking for what elicited the comments.
Frank is right.
Top posters are cheaters and should all be killed unless they can
